Aidan Campbell is an associate lawyer at Mahon & Company. He specializes in refugee and immigration law, with a particular interest in assisting those with tenuous immigration status, those facing removal from Canada, and those looking to overcome inadmissibility on medical, criminal, or national security grounds. Aidan also assists with family reunification in Canada and, as a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community himself, is sensitive to the difficulties queer families face in navigating Canada’s immigration system.
Aidan received his Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto in 2018. Much of his time there was spent working in the immigration and refugee division of Downtown Legal Services, a legal clinic serving low income individuals. Through his work at the clinic, Aidan had the opportunity to directly assist clients with their immigration issues, appear before the Refugee Protection Division, and participate in public interest litigation, including a constitutional challenge to Canada’s Safe Third Country Agreement.
Aidan articled at a leading immigration firm in Vancouver, B.C., where he gained extensive experience in immigration enforcement matters and assisted in preparing applications for the judicial review of negative immigration decisions before the Federal Court of Canada. Through his articles Aidan appeared before the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board to secure the release of detained individuals and to dispute allegations of inadmissibility.
Aidan is a member of the Canadian Bar Association Immigration Section and the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers. Prior to his legal career, Aidan completed a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Economics (with distinction) from the University of British Columbia.
